Making Your Entryway Safer
Aging in place, also known as living in place, is the ability to live in your own home independently and safely, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). AARP reports that 90 percent of adults over the age of 65 want to remain at their current residence. Furthermore, one in three American households include at least one resident 60 years of age or older. Bottom line, most people want to live at home as long as possible, and this desire will have a profound impact on our residences and neighborhoods over the coming years. As it happens, the inevitable results of aging make older adults susceptible to certain injuries at home, and these increased risks may affect their ability to age in place.
